Yes, it’s not impossible but you can do it
We all know Apple make really nice tech, and sometimes they even innovate (sometimes), however we also know that Apple are complete dicks. Proven in recent weeks and admitting to deliberately slowing down iPhones when new software updates are pushed out.
Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices.
Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.
I’m certain that they are also doing this to MacBook’s too as I know people who have them and they have virtually come to a crawl with each new software update. I used this analogy on Twitter but imagine taking your new car that you bought in 2017 for its first annual service in 2018 and the garage removed 50bph from the engine without telling you. This is the sort of crap Apple has been doing for years, altering a product that you bought in good faith to make it slower knowing full well this will push you into upgrading.
Well, fear not there is a way to stop them, and it will work with all Apple products. The solution is simple, STOP buying Apple products, switch over to Android today, there are some fantastic phones out there that do everything and far more than an iPhone can do. The same goes for laptops and other items, Apple has blown it, jump ship now.
Here’s how to stop Apple slowing down your iPhone and other products for good was originally published in Ireland’s Technology Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
